Thanks, but I’m more interested in the knowledge in a book than where it has been or who it goes to when I am done. I am willing to share my personal library with local folks who commit to returning them.
I have collected a number of boat building and marine construction books, as well as a number of other titles related in some way.
Concrete Afloat has some really good discussion. It was written in 1977 but has some benefit in being closer in time to the WWI and WWII concrete building scene, as well as some perspective on the beginnings of the North Sea concrete construction efforts. I’m reading it now- it’s organized as a series of papers. The one on the evolution of class certification for concrete ships and concrete platforms has some really good basic info on how to judge risk for hull-shape and rectangular platforms both.
